Also, when building your ad, enter any “Tags” that are applicable. A Tag will help someone find your item when they search for specific words. For example, if you are selling a tent, use the tags: two-person tent, Brand Name, camping tent, etc. Think about what people will be searching for that will make your item applicable!
